1 Claim.

The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in file cabinets and more particularly to a cabinet having rotatable racks therein for holding files or other documents.

An important object of the invention is to provide a file cabinet with a central hollow post on which the file supporting racks are rotatably mounted and by means of which the racks may be turned to bring the files into position at a door in the front of the cabinet.

A further object of the invention is to form the hollow post with compartments having individual doors for placing valuables therein.

A still further object is to provide a file cabinet of novel construction to support the rotating racks or shelves therein and which at the same time is strong and durable, neat and attractive in appearance, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.

Other objects and advantages reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view;

Figure 2 is an enlarged vertical sectional view;

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 33 of Figure 2;

Figure 4 is a fragmentary horizontal sectional view taken on the line l-d of Figure 2, and;

Figure 5 is a fragmentary view in elevation of of the hollow post indicated by the line 55 of Figure 2.

Referring now to the drawings in detail wherein for the purpose of illustration I have disclosed a preferred embodiment of the invention, the numeral 5 designates a cylindrical casing or shell forming a file cabinet which is supported at its lower end on a base 5 and closed at its upper end by a top I.

An opening 8 is formed in the front of the cabinet which extends substantially from top to bottom thereof, the opening being closed by a pair of sliding doors 9 and I!) which are curved according to the shell Or casing 5 and which have their lower edges supported on rollers ll rotatably supported inside the lower portion of casing or shell 5 between a ring l2 and the wall of the casing or shell. The ring I2 is suitably secured inside the lower portion of casing or shell 5 and an upper ring [3 is also suitably secured inside the upper portion of casing or shell 5 for supporting upper rollers l4 between the ring and the wall of the casing or shell, to serve as an anti-friction guide for the upper edges of the doors 9 and I0.

Upper and lower plates 15 and I6 are welded to upper and lower rings [3 and I2 and the hollow post I! is welded to plates l5 and IE5 at the center of casing or shell 5. A plurality of rods 18 extend transversely of the post I! at vertically spaced apart intervals for supporting bearing assemblies l9 and on which circular racks or shelves 20 are rotatably mounted. The bearing assemblies include an outer ring 2| from which arms 22 extend radially to underlie the racks or shelves 20 and welded thereto to prevent tilting thereof.

Racks 20 are formed with radial partitions 23 forming compartments 24 therein and in which paper files, documents or the like, may be placed.

The hollow post I! is provided with horizontal partitions 24 welded or otherwise suitably secured in the post substantially in the plane of the racks or shelves 20 to form a compartment 25 in the post between adjacent shelves. Compartment 25 is provided with a door 26 mounted on hinges 21 and provided with a lock 28 of a conventional type.

In the operation of the device access to the several racks or shelves 20 is afforded by opening sliding doors 9 and I0 and the racks or shelves 20 may be individually rotated on post ll to bring a desired file, document or the like into position at the opening 8 in the front of the cabinet.

The compartment 25 formed in the hollow post I! may be used for storing valuables or small articles for safe keeping.

In view of the foregoing description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings it is believed that a clear understanding of the device will be quite apparent to those skilled in this art. A more detailed description is accordingly deemed unnecessary.

It is to be understood, however, that even though there is herein shown and described a preferred embodiment of the invention the same is susceptible to certain changes fully comprehended by the spirit of the invention as herein described and the scope of the appended claim.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

A rotary file cabinet comprising a stationary shell, a door, means slidably mounting the door in the shell, a vertical hollow post having a side opening, means mounting said post centrally in said shell in fixed position, a horizontal partition in the post forming a compartment therein accessible through said opening, an annular shelf UNITED STATES PATENTS surrounding said post at substantially the level Number Name Date or the bottom of the compartment, means 1o 799 233 Hubben Sept. 12 1905 tatably supporting said shelf on said post for ro- 938309 Alexander Nov. 2 1909 tation by a hand inserted through said door, and 5 9543805 Hitchcock 1910 radial partitions on said shelf dividing the same 1,236,212 saladee 1917 into article-receiving compartments rotatable Se- 1,386,500 Hue 2 1921 lectively by rotation 0f said shelf nto position 1 573 99 Preddey Feb 3 192 opposite said opening for transfer of articles from 1 755 477 Hunyady 22 1930 the selected compartment into the first-named 10 2091292 Scurlock Aug 1937 Compartment 2:133:856 Guthrie Oct: 18: 1938 MARTA PEREZ DE PERALES- 2,371,917 Rosenberg Mar. 20, 1945 REFERENCES CITED
